moments in my life. Then again, I suppose if I did, or if anyone did for that matter, the French wouldn’t have bothered coining such a beautiful phrase for them. It would be too, ‘ow you say, ‘common.’ 😉

A Quiet Post

To all those having commenting issues, I’m sorry – I have sent your screen shots and messages onto the people managing my blog and hopefully it will be resolved soon! Plug-ins and all can be crazy 😛
Thank you for being so patient though!!

And I actually totally owed you all the final part of my USA Party series, butttt I need some photos from my daddy (who is a seriously awesome amateur photographer… kind of contradictory because how can you be amateur if you are so good?) – so, not that I just buttered him up or anything (:P), hopefully I will be able to write that up soon!



Before I start my usual ramblings in this post, I would like to tell all you wonderful people who mentally sent me down the cold after my rant last post, that it worked! Because right now, it is raining outside with no blue skies for miles around me 😀
Yay! I hope I returned the favour and sent the heat steaming towards you all!


And if it wasn’t you… then I can only assume Mother Nature is drunk.

Happy Belated Birthday PDS!

Dear PDS (actually that sounds too much like GPS, I will call you Pie – it more than appropriate don’t you think considering this blog’s theme?)

Ok so let’s start again…

Dear Pie,

Firstly, I know that your birthday was actually the 2nd of September and right now, it is the 23rd. Your birthday marked the beginning of Spring and sun and fun so I am sorry I could not get you your present by then to celebrate because, as you know, we were studying biology/Facebook stalking + Youtubing Michael Jackson videos from that time on.

But now that it (the unmentionable period) is all over, I hope you enjoyed your tart. Do you want to know why I made chose this dessert this year for you?

‘Someday We’re Gonna Get So Highhhhh…’

Actually Made: 9th November 2011

Well, I am back luckily in the middle of the week once more to show you guys a little bit of poshness – a soufflé.

Yes I know, so sophisticated, a baker’s horror etc. but seriously this is truly a simple dessert (after all, we made during school and managed to get out during recess – so cannot be too hard!)


Ms D told us some really cool facts about soufflés:

  1. A traditional soufflé is made by mixing a sweetened roux sauce (a flour and fat based French sauce) into stiff egg whites to give it a total air factor
  2. By greasing the ramekins with butter and sugar instead of butter and flour, the upper ‘crown’ or crust which forms above the ramekin will have a nice crustiness to it (before deflation of course) 😛
